100 of the Best Blogs on Leadership may sound like just about every imaginable leadership blog worth its salt would have been included. That is an incorrect conclusion. After I posted my list of my favorite leadership blogs, readers sent me lots more names to add to the list. One of them that was specifically recommended was Leadership for Lawyers, authored by Mark Beese. I took that recommendation and am glad I did–the blog has outstanding content presented in well-written and timely fashion.
Fittingly, Mark was named by LawDragon as one of the Top 100 Legal Consultants. If his consulting services are on par with his blogging efforts, I’d say it’s an honor well deserved. And he is in good company, to boot. Aside from Mark Beese, the list includes leadership greats, such as long-time leadership consultant David Meister, several of the Hildebrandt International all-star team also are included. Larry Richard, Ph.D, is one such all-star. I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Richard speak about the traditional character personalities of lawyers about two years ago. As a former practicing attorney, who chose to pursue his Ph.D in psychology more than a decade after having completed his J.D. at the University of Pennsylvania.
Although I can attest to Mark’s praise-worthy services only second-hand, I can attest personally to Dr. Richard’s leadership genius. In both cases, congratulations for being recognized for successfully teaching the important leadership message to lawyers. Goodness knows, we are certainly in need of the lessons being taught!
